Description of problem:
Typing "halt" at the command prompt results in a system hang and on shutdown
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type "halt" at command line.
System hangs and never shuts down.
System shuts down.
The http://pastebin.test.redhat.com/96316 as usermode output.
"halt" halts the machine, it stops running, but is still powered; it does not
shut it down. The mentioned "hang" is the unique feature of halt.
"poweroff" does halt the machine and shuts it down.
Please do no ask me what "halt" is good for. :) But it's all expected behaviour.
